…find myself in a recording studio. A couple months ago my sister told me about an opportunity to read for Pearson that required “real life” teachers. I applied on a whim, and even spent an afternoon working on my audition video. Let me tell you, an audition video at home does not translate to this.
I was surprised at how nervous I was! There were 12 scripts that I did not need to memorize, thought I did read through them a few times. While reading through them I was pretty comfortable, reading the teleprompter proved a little difficult. First off, instead of paragraphs there are 3-4 words per line. For example, this paragraph? Looked like this:
You get the idea, right? Plus, I didn’t have my glasses on…nor did I mention that I can’t quite see that far. HA! These guys probably thought I couldn’t read! I remember reading the word “lead” as “load” multiple times.
The video clips that were filmed will be supplemental to a history text. So if any students go on the Pearson website for lessons, etc, they’ll see me,
stammering squinting talking about the 1800s.
